Navigating the SEO Landscape: AI's Evolution and Impact on Organic Search in 2023

AI has played a significant role in algorithm updates for a decade with search engines announcing new AI advancements in 2023. Improved search algorithms such as Hummingbird, BERT, and RankBrain help search engines interpret user intent, analyze content contextually, and provide for more accurate rankings. These integrations have assisted in the understanding of the nuances behind search terms, including long-tail keywords, voice search, and conversational search queries, leading to more relevant search results for users.

Additionally, many AI tools are being released to support advanced optimization strategies. New AI tools and platforms can be used for keyword research, on-page optimizations, and link building to help SEOs identify optimization opportunities more efficiently.

Organic Search and AI Upgrades in 2023

Google recently announced a new generative AI feature, providing better results and stronger search understanding for complex long-tail queries including conversational search enhancements. The context behind the search intention will be used to deliver the best results for how humans think and use search engines to find what they’re looking for. This will provide for a more natural and faster search experience.

For online shopping, generative AI in search better empowers users to make informed purchasing decisions faster. It provides an easy view using Google’s Shopping Graph of the most important shopping considerations for a product including relevant reviews, ratings, prices, images, and descriptions of products.

The new generative AI feature also provides users with a stronger connection to diverse perspectives. A new Perspectives filter can be applied to search results for audiences to discover videos, images, and written posts where people have shared information on the topic of interest within discussion boards, social media platforms, and Q&A sites. This focus on the quality of information will continue to transform how Google ranks results and considers Organic authority.

Trends and Expectations

  • More personalized search results: AI will continue to be used to better understand user preferences and deliver personalized search results from a variety of unique perspectives to enhance the individual search experience. Understanding user behavior and using predictive technology to provide answers to expected follow-up questions will provide a seamless search conversation with users.
  • Increased importance of high-quality, relevant content for natural language processing (NLP): Content that is helpful, reliable, and created for the user first will continue to earn better rankings and reach more relevant audiences. Search results will feature more content from unique experiences and higher levels of expertise to deliver better search results. Brands using malicious techniques that violate Google's Quality Guidelines will be impacted with less Organic visibility.
  • Higher monthly searches for complex long-tail keywords: Generative AI features will provide for better search experiences around searches that used to have to be split up to get accurate results. This will allow audiences to be more creative and specific in how they search for information.
  • More visual results in the search result landscape: In addition to Google’s Shopping Graph and Google Lens, search engines will be providing more visual results prioritizing different search results types including knowledge graphs, featured snippets, videos, images, and more. This will provide for more personalized and attractive search results that will be increasingly competitive, potentially leading to less visibility opportunities and click traffic for text-based content including informational landing pages that lack optimized media.
  • Identification of patterns and trends to help SEOs react faster and analyze data more efficiently: The release of new AI tools and platforms may provide for more automated data analysis to help SEOs solve problems and take corrective measures faster. Additionally, AI-based tools may be used to quickly analyze a brand’s online profile with predictive analysis of ranking growth to help improve ranking volatility and fluctuations.
  • Increased importance of managing Schema: Rich results are generated on results pages using Schema data from ranking websites. As rich results continue to grow in popularity and new rich result features are added with the advent of AI-powered search, the importance of managing Schema and site taxonomy grows along with it.
